Who have thought I can use my mobile and my bag to use it to shoot my journey. This trail got wide variety of choices we can go up to Methlang , sarangkot or we can take some side trails for professionals or anyone can start a journey from Ratomato Hill ( Pokhara ,parsyang ) to lakeside. I think I should change My name to Mr.Lucky……………
Normal Day Normal start it was nice sunny day in Pokhara. I had a hard-tail mountain bike and have to test its limit on real trail. I was looking for some adventurous trails where i could test my limit true but i was not prepared for this.
Going up was fun but I chose the wrong way so i have to carry my bike for most of the time
While I was climbing down I realized this trail was far more hard for my and my bike because i was beginner with beginner second hand mountain bike which have defective rear brake. While riding down hill I rear brakes are only thing u can rely on that was lesson I learnt yesterday. Though it was dangerous and I was thinking I should not had chose that path but strangely I was having fun. That was adventure I always wanted. Omg I am going to bump that tree, Omg I have to jump from my bike, Ah!!!! it hurts, Shit!!! not that bush these were the thing running inside my mind over and over again but Adrenaline was doing its work and calling me for more and more I fell like dozen times but it was not matter at all. After half an hour of the fun roller coaster ride the trail was over. This ride gave me life best memory of my life with some scratches and cuts to remember it. I will return to that trail again and again but certainly not with those not working rear brakes and zero skilled mountain bike beginner.
But I wish I had a Go-pro with me it was hell of a ride to share.
I am lucky because I live in Pokhara ( Eighth natural wonder and paradise ). It keeps surprising me everyday and it is full of wonders nevertheless you are willing to do little extra hard work for it.
By little I actually meant little( very little). After just walking less than a hour you can earn yourself a spectacular view of nature but what if you have a mountain bike?………….
I am new in mountain biking. I recently bought a second hand Giant Revel 3 a hard-tail beginner mountain bike. After a operation and suffering from anemia I wanted a new adventure In my life so that’s when I bought a mountain bike. It was a normal Saturday( in my country we have vacation on Saturday) I was sitting in front of my bike and staring at it and thinking where should I go. Thena idea popped into my head lets go to Dobilla . So I packed two apples , a towel , a knife , a headlight and a rope in my bag. I wore my helmet and headed for my destination point (For who dont know where dobilla is its straight road when you reach International Mountain Museum matepani, pokhara ).
It was normal ride with nice road so I decided to go off road. After riding for one and half hour i was amazed by fact that more i go farther more I see Girls ( 😀 it’s normal to see a girl but they were not normal village girls but a city girls with nice clothing ) but as far I knew i was far far from city because i was riding for more than hour, i was riding off road there were only few houses and a symmetry around . I had no idea what was happening .
As I was riding along the Gandaki river the view was spectacular I snapped some photo and stared my journey again.
and after riding 5 minutes i found myself in a highway!!!!!!! and I was in Gagangauda and there was board writing way to Pokhara University. That was not normal too because as I knew I was riding south to pokhara and Pokkhara University is on east but I got the answer of where those beautiful girls were coming from.
I was bit dissapointed because i expected to reach some very quite place with few people and nice view where i could have those two apples i packed before 😀 but i was in the middle of the city.
I decided to continue my journey unitl I reach to base of the hill in front of me. I rode though many round about and i randomly choose the turns.After riding for about an hour i reached a paddy field it was yellow and aroma of the paddy was something stuck in my nose.
Riding thorough it was fun and suddenly a view in front of my eyes made me to stop. I was speech less and i was not expecting that. I never felt so lucky
It was a lake in front of me a beautiful lake. After scanning through the board with my eyes I got shocked that i am in front of Rupa lake . I always wanted to go to Rupa lake and i was planning to go there soon but i never thought i will be there without me knowing. Random trail , random turns and I am in the place where I always dreamt to be. My excitement was at it’s peak as I was riding around Rupa lake.
After saying good bye to my small competitor I thought “finally i can eat my those two apples”.
I bought a Mirinda form nearby small shop and sat by the lake shore below the big tree. Snapped some photo. It was like heaven to sit on forgotten but beautiful rupa lake.
